The Knoxville Girls Tennis Squad got off to a great start to the season last night by blanking Chariton 9-0. Emily Lee, Kassie Griggs, Shamene Norman, Paige Spowart, Jenn Adrian, and Madison Chrisman all won in singles. Coach Nick DeMoss was very pleased with the play. He has been trying to change the attitude in recent seasons from hoping to win, to thinking they will win every time they have a match. He has seen the change in practice this season especially with the younger girls. He adds that attitude will make them better players in the long run. The girls will have eight days off to prepare for the Little Hawkeye Conference favorite in their home opener against Pella Christian.
